Are Death Stars Really Dead? – FTN
This has been a crazy week for 40k. We had a TON of rules discussion directly from the Warhammer Community team.
All this week I’ve been putting reaction videos on the FTN YouTube page. Please check them out if you haven’t already.
This week is just Chris and Paul on the mic giving our impressions of Warhammer 40k 8th Edition. The Games Workshop is giving us a little bit of the rules each day to digest. Today we got an update on Warzone: Damoclese.
The change to Characters is pretty big – but I think it will likely just be in perception only. Now, if the Character isn’t the closest model then you aren’t able to target him with shooting. This means look out sir is also gone, but a clever general will put 20-50 wounds easily between you and their heavy hitters. No more 1-6 chance that they will have to take the saves themselves.
All in all, the nature of a Star is dead and gone, but what is taking it’s place?
The second part of the show we focus a lot on the dramatic increase in shooting efficiency from Twin Linked weapons and Combi Weapons.
The Finishing Moves segment is sponsored by Frontline Gaming. Their new mats are now hot off the presses and getting ready to be shipped. Please check them out, even if you already have a game mat. Their new styles are very impressive. Frontline is hosting another destination tournament event! Tickets went on sale for the SoCal Open May 1st and are selling fast.
this week is about Blood Effects. We talk a lot about using Blood for the Blood God technical paint but there are a lot of ways to accomplish this on your miniatures.
Alternatively you can subscribe via your own iTunes, and it should update our podcast when we post a new one.
